SH5 Waimangu resurfacing works start tonight


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises resurfacing work will take place at the State Highway 5/State Highway 38 intersection in Waimangu overnight on Wednesday 28 April and Thursday 29 April.

Works are being completed at night to minimise disruption to motorists and are scheduled to take place between 6pm and 6am.

During the works, stop/go traffic management will be in place alongside a 30km/h temporary speed limit. Minor delays are expected as a result.

Motorists are asked to take extra care when travelling through the site and follow directions of traffic management staff and signage.

These works are part of the Waka Kotahi road maintenance programme to repair and reseal state highways across the Bay of Plenty to ensure the safety and resilience of the transport network.

In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work may be postponed.
